163.365.2013 Driving Mr. Wino

We splurged a bit today (yes, more than we have so far) and rented a town car/driver. Kevin was great! I would highly recommend it to anyone.

The experience allowed us to go a bit further to go to some of our favorite locations that are a bit north of Napa. BUT, before all that, we hit Schramsberg, a champagne house that’s the second oldest winery in Napa. The tour was fantastic with a ton of history and then a tasting in their caves. Yum! We ended up joining the wine club — the only one all week! (If you don’t know me, that’s a HUGE accomplishment.)


Afterwards, we drove to Geyersville and visited my #1 favorite place Meeker Vineyards. Julia is ever the hostess with great conversation and delicious wines. She even opened a special bottle for us since we are members and it was my birthday!


Heraldsburg was our next stop… They have a ton of tasting rooms in a small walking distance. We hit 3 of them… Murphy Goode (a Minnesota based family and we’re members), Williamson Winery (great food pairings!) and then ParTake by KJ. The food experience at KJ was ridiculous! I was in awe at how much the wine and food change when combined.




That was the end of our touring. We came back to the hotel and relaxed in the hot tub for awhile before enjoying dinner. And we did a little check in on our pooch’s vacation! Looks like he’s having fun…
